Seasons of Change provide something for all:

A unique mountain retreat that offers not only first class accommodation but also the ability to walk and ride on our 400 acre conservation land and for those who wish to wander further, the land also adjoins the 28,000 sq miles of the Pisgah Forest. Milima Ranch truly is a destination of 4 seasons. The winter offers some exceptional snow days and the landscape transforms into dramatic scenery that reveals the very backbone of the land which is hidden in the lush months of the summer.

The spring, summer and fall months yet again present an ever changing canvas of the mountains and the wildflowers are a sight to be seen. A special treat starting in September is the ripening of the apple trees that are scattered throughout the 400 acres, followed shortly after by the fiery fall leaf season.

Romantic, Outdoor/Active or Nature Getaway:

The cabin lends itself equally to a romantic getaway for a couple or a gathering of up to 10 people without compromising comfort or coziness. The split level offers privacy and comfort and a cozy corner or porch for everyone.

For the Outdoor enthusiasts there are many trails throughout the 400 acres that offer a nature lovers paradise. The wildlife and rare botanical species abound on the conservation land which protects the watersheds that are the source of Fines Creek and The Pigeon River.

Perfect for Family, Corporate or Group Retreats:

Milima Ranch offers another cabin which can be made available for larger gatherings. The cabins are conveniently located to each other and yet secluded.

For those who wish to sight see, convenient access off I-40, only 5 minutes from exit to entrance, allows for quick trips to the surrounding attractions, including Asheville and its famous Biltmore Estate, Waynesville, Maggie Valley's Cataloochee Ski Area, the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Great Smoky Mountains and Lake Junaluska to name a few. These areas offer activities for everybody including skiing, fishing, white water rafting, canoeing, zip lining and many more.

What A Wonderful Week it Was

  • 5 of 5

When I say we loved our stay, it's an extreme understatement. The house, the property, and the surroundings are nothing short of magical; I described them as such in my first Instagram post upon arrival. I do believe the exact hashtag was #heavenonearth. :) The Moonshine cabin is exquisite, and you will be treated like royalty by Georgina and Amber. I HIGHLY recommend this little slice of perfection to anyone who desires a mountain getaway that is relatively close to big cities and events. I would go back in a heartbeat! My husband, my sister and brother-in-law, our children, and I all had the best time making memories at Milima Ranch.

Magic in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been to Milima ranch a few times and it is magical. We have been blessed to travel as a family to many beautiful places like Alaska, Hawaii and Mexico, but Milima is our favorite. The setting, view, hiking, fresh spring water and surrounding attractions put this mountain paradise in a league all of it's own. If you love the outdoors or if you have never been able to connect with the outdoors, this place is for you. It is nothing short of a spiritual experience as it seems to transform you to appreciate how blessed you are to experience such beauty this side of Heaven's gate. I know my family carry little piece of this place in their hearts and when things get challenging in our daily lives, we all go to Milima in our mind as our happy place to comfort our soul.

Owner's Response: I am the one that is blessed to know your family and have you as my guests since inception. It has been a journey... After renting Moonshine for 2 seasons I decided to move the rental up to MilkyWay and see what all my guests enjoyed down by the stream! Well it is time to open it up again, keep it in my family, but share it with others. Maybe one day I will claim it for my own but for now, onward! I look forward to see you all this coming October and as always, look for the new subtle upgrades coming to Moonshine, MilkyWay and Milima Ranch.

Fabulous experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Moonshine Cabin. On this trip we brought our whole family...six adults and 2 children...and had a wonderful, memorable vacation together! The log home is exactly as described, the views are outstanding, and the owner is a great communicator and very attentive to any needs or requests. Georgina works constantly around the ranch, keeps everything in immaculate condition, and is a joy to work with. The home has all the finest appointments yet has a cozy, homecoming feel. The beds are fabulous. This property is on the top of our list of favorite places to stay in western NC!

A wonderful, magical property.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property last year. I have an upcoming week at this property beginning 13 Oct. 2012. I have failed to write a review mainly because I am selfish and wanted to keep this property out of the media as much as possible, I'm sure not the sentiments of the owner. This property presents itself as secluded, affordable, and beautiful, with all the ammenties. The owner Georgina has all the charm and knowledge it takes to make the moments there even more rewarding. The best location in the North Carolina mountains

Moonshine Cabin = Delight for our Senses!

  • 5 of 5

Our retreat to Moonshine cabin was a delight for our senses! The sight of this majestic ranch with its unparalleled mountain/valley views, the sound of the babbling brook and the birds and creatures of nature, the touch of the smooth natural stone counters and the hewn wood beams of the great room and natural porch rails, the smell of the clean crisp morning air along with the plants and trees surrounding this luxurious cabin truly made this a perfect place to rest and reinvigorate from our very busy lives!

The little details such as the handmade soaps, the fresh wildflowers in the house and on the porch, the hummingbird feeder to attract the hummingbirds, the candles found in the wooden holders on the dining table and outdoor seating area, the small wooden cross hanging on a rail of the master bedroom porch, the picnic area set up over the brook, the selection of novels and books that enticed us to curl up in front of the fireplace, or on the rocker on the porch to read, The staff who greated us, and were on the ranch during our stay were very welcoming and informative, and truly made us feel like we were at “home”…

We will return, God willing so that as a family we can experience this magnificent place again, and I personally so that I can finish the Wayne Caldwell novel I started during this perfect vacation in the beautifully appointed Moonshine Cabin!

Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a week up at this home and are happy to report that it lived up to its previous great reviews in every way. We truly enjoyed the home, it's fine amenities, and the surrounding area that holds stunning beauty. From hanging out on the porch listening to the creek run by to cooking in the kitchen with all high-end appliances, this home was our social hub. The kitchen was truly functional. Not just a few pots and pans, but eveything you need to cook a meal (except the food, of course). So many places are really only set up for light meals. The home is great for kids and adults. Awesome for a two family meet-up. And one of the most relaxing places we've stayed. A great escape from the Florida summer heat.
